I have the looseleaf variety of this blend, purchased from Rington’s with a few other things. I was introduced to this company when they were present during the 2019 Northwest Tea Festival and purchased some of their Northumbrian blend then. I got more of that but felt like trying the Breakfast Blend today.

Very delicious. Very robust and very malty. I see that the teas came from both Assam and Kenyan varieties which makes the strength of the brew make sense, those are both very robust black teas. Added milk and sugar and it’s quite the treat. A tiny bit minerally in the aftertaste. I will enjoy this and likely a second steep.

The looseleaf is still very CTC looking but it lets me control how much I’m brewing much better than the bags. I have some bags of the Gold Blend, which I’ll have to figure out how many bags to my teapot or various mug sizes. Right now using a ~4 cup teapot which measures out to 2 servings in my 22 oz repurposed beer stein/glass tea mug.

The caffeine is strong with this one! I’m enjoying the flavor but not as much as I thought I might. I’m not sure if the taste is worth the caffeine jitters I’m experiencing right now. Overall, a good strong breakfast tea for those cold and sleepy mornings. It seems reliable and steady enough, but it’s not likely to be a favorite for me.

The first thing I have to say about this one is that it really surprised me. I don’t drink a lot of bagged tea at the moment, but it generally seems much of a muchness to me when I do. At least in the UK, the flavour profiles of “breakfast blend” style black teas seem very similar – sweet, malty, strong, and otherwise fairly nondescript. Until now.
